It's really in my blood. I have had a hammer or saw in my hands since I was 5. My dad was very handy and could fix or build anything. I am the older child and he included me and taught me to not be afraid to tackle your dreams.
I am a creative professional and local remodeler who loves helping people achieve the home remodel projects of their dreams within a realistic budget--taking client visions and seeing them through to reality.
Beyond top-to-bottom remodels, I have an exceptional eye for detail and I love getting to know my clients and the challenge of helping them find the items and design they love, while bringing it all together in a cohesive and curated style that reflects each unique client and remains true to their vision.
This year, I became a board member of the Greater Houston’s Builders Association’s Remodelers Council, chairing the Annual Charity Project. I have continued my education at the GHBA, stayed up with the most recent developments and technologies in my field, and formed great allies in the industry. One of my most rewarding projects has been the 2015 Charity Project where we redesigned highly used spaces at Family Time Crisis Center, a domestic violence shelter in north Harris county.
Apart from my work in other people's homes, I have a heart for mission work in developing countries. I recently visited Haiti with my son, and am always interested in how construction is done in other countries with such limited resources. I even picked up a tip or two from some of the concrete workers who were skimming the outside of a house with beautiful architectural detail.
My favorite aspect of this industry is the endless creative possibilities. No two people are the same, nor do they have the same vision or needs. Therefore, no two designs are the same. My joy comes from successfully helping my clients achieve a space they love and fits their needs.
